J is for...Judge Judy

Judge Judy Sheindlin                           Image via WikipediaJudge Judy is a legend of court room television. She has the longest running and highest rated of all the court room shows. She is also the first to have their name in the title of the show.
Judge Judy Sheindlin was made a judge by then New York City Mayor Ed Koch in 1982. She was a criminal court judge for four years and then a family court judge until 1996, when the Judge Judy show started in September. She became known for her no nonsense attitude, wise-cracks and wanting to use the court system for the common good, making people to take responsibility for their action. Because of this, Judge Judy does not suffer fools gladly. As she often says...'I'm smarter then you'll ever be.' Actually the best part of the show is all her Judyisms...
